The great thing about having a company like Securus is that this company is able to completely change the way that people look at the concept of prison visits. There are a lot of inmates in the prison system. There are a lot of people like myself that have no interest in going to a prison for any type of visitation. I don’t have to even consider this though. I have an app that was developed by Securus that has allowed me to start up some visitation without ever leaving the comfort of my home.
I have considered myself lucky to live in a day and age when I do not have to go to a prison if I want to visit with a family member. I have had family members that had to put a lot of time into driving to prisons. This was something that they did because they simply did not have any other options. Things have changed quite a bit now. People can use the collect call method if they choose, but I don’t like this overprice method of communication. For me everything has been about the video visitation. This has been the most convenient way for me to communicate, and I would not change this at all.
I know that there are tons of people that have become interested in cutting collect call phone bills. This is a good thing because it gives you the chance to get a number that people can call that is not an 800 number. That is much more convenient and it is a lot less taxing on my monthly budget. I have been able to see the difference in savings because I have one cousin that calls all the time. I used to have a very high phone bill that was mostly because of collect calls. With Securus I am able to save more thanks to the video visits and the 800 number. There is even a jail voice mail option for people that just want to see a message without engaging in a full conversation. Securus makes communication much easier for people that want to stay in touch.
